  • Day107

    Dublin

    July 31, 2016 in Ireland

    What a day. Started off managing to get my nails done and wax. Yeh! Then headed off to see if I could catch up to Megan. Obviously she was well ahead, so wandered on down to see if I could find a Penny's store and Sketchers. Amazingly I did. Found an info centre and booked for night bus tour but decided it might be better to stay clear of town on my own as there was a football game on between Barcelona and Ireland and the pubs were pretty rowdy even at 4.oopm. My bus trip was at 7.00pm so they would be well under way by then.

    Instead I did a walking tour around Dublin going from ytht castle to cathedral to site of the first performance of Handels Messiah. The castle site is now Irish parliament and we went into the garden area which is set up to allow helicopters to land. Finally made it back to hotel and had lovely meal with Marie and Neville.

    On the way to Wales

    July 31, 2016 in Ireland

    Done ferry crossing. Into Wales landing at Holyhead. Lovely ferry, the Ulysses. Played Pokies trying to get rid of change. Debbie, Seriously and I tried very hard to get rid of €2 and ended up with €5. Had lots of laughs though!

    Irish sea gave us a a very gentle crossing. Holyhead has been in use since 17 hundreds. Photo of memorial for merchant seamen who have died on board ships. The Edinburgh Castle was one of first pub seen!

    Area of Anglesey is the bread basket of Wales. This is Druid land where they hoped to resist the Romans. Unfortunately it was unsuccessful, even setting up on Holyhead.

    About 3 million people live in Wales. Of these about 1 third speak Welsh as a first language.

  • Day2

    Docklands

    December 30, 2016 in Ireland

    Wir waren heute Abend noch im Hafen von Dublin, aber viel gab es da nicht zu sehen.
    Das ganze Gebiet ist noch relativ neu (teilweise noch in Bau) und daher sehr modern. Erinnert ein bisschen an die Hamburger Hafencity.
    Das ist schon ein deutlicher Unterschied zur sonstigen
    Dubliner Architektur.
    Die Samuel Beckett Brücke gehört auch zu den neueren, modernen Brücken, sah aber angeleuchtet sehr schön aus.Read more
